president obama's former campaign manager david plouffe and steve schmidt talk about the 2012 election. both mr. playoff and mr. schmidt attended the university of delaware. >> welcome back to the national agenda program. i'm director for the center of political communication. this is the final program of the 2012 presidential election season. i'm very very pleased that all of you are here tonight and i know that's a tribute to our two guest speakers this evening. two years ago in the wake of the sha lacking president obama took in the midterm congressional elections, the architect of the president's 2008 victory david plouffe stood on this stage and predicted the electorate voting in 2012 would be more diverse and younger than it was just two years earlier. he talked then about the growing latino electorate and he predicted that the obama campaign in 2012 would have to take advantage of those demographic opportunities. plouffe also predicted on this stage that the american people in 2012 would have had enough of republicans who were like glenn beck, sara palin and rush limbaugh. we are just
's not unique to this election or republican party. in 2004 many democrats believed he had a device on his shoulder so he would be given instructions during the debate. it's snanty. i think in our politics today both parties want to construct an image of their opponent that is not grounded in reaty. so the alternative universe. there are two. one is the romney campaign had an unrealistic view of what the electorate was going to be and that was one of the reasons they lost. certainly one of the reasons they went in the election confident. th wasn't an act. they thought they were going to win. but there is this view of barack obama. if you read and watch the conservative entertainment complex how could this guy get re-elected because we're socialist and week on terism and we're not honest and tt's not how most of america cease the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully unders
reelection in two years. you can read too much into this election. this was not a mandate. this was a popular vote to% election, even electoral votes when he looked at the states, separated by 2%, 3%, 4%. this was not some kind of major reelection when like reagan had, like even clnton had. clinton might think, won by 8%, reagan nine, ten, 11%. there is no real mandate here. so i can't see the republicans getting too overwhelmed by these ads. the president's new popularity numbers just came out. it's 51 percent. that is a pretty small jump for a guy you just won an election. tom: t only people are really concerned, two years from now there is another whole house -- house members that will be reelected. >> and they have to go back to district that elected them to lower taxes. so you go back to that district. you promise you'll never vote for a tax increase. taxes go up. tom: two years later. >> and membersof congress think about themselves and their reelection. tom: let me ask you bout retail. on the cusp of thanksgiving, but friday coming up. all kinds of issues. you are telling me before we
, thank you. >> gregg: contest in the background on egypt's president morsi. he was elected in june of this year after a revolution overthrowing president hosni mubarak. he is head 6 muslim brotherhood. he is the first freely elected president and first islamist to be head of an arab state. they accuse him of trying to monopolize powers, the courts and media and parliament and in the end, sharia law, imposing strict islamic principles. >> heather: it raises new questions coming one day after egypt help broker a cease-fire in the gaza strip. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton joined us earlier to weigh in saying it's no coincidence. >> he didn't wait but one day before moving here. so whether he had a wink and a nod from president obama or whether whether he felt emboldened in the wake of the cease-fire to believe the u.s. would not criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out in the next few days. the timing is not coincidental. you can bet on that. >> heather: coming up the latest reaction from the white house to the turmoil
situation is different. >> i'm not obligated on the pledge. i made tennesseans aware, i was just elected, that the only thing i'm monitoring is the oath that i take when i serve when i'm sworn in this january. >> reporter: gop lawmakers bluntly stating to alert the fiscal cliff, they're ready to break from grover norquist and the pledge he's got most republicans to sign to never raise taxes. norquist waste nod time hitting back on cnn's s"starting point" >> it doesn't pass the laugh test. if you want to go to your voters and say, i promised you this and i'm breaking that problem, you can have that conversation with them. but you don't have an argument with me. you've made a commitment to your voters. >> reporter: the question, will more republicans rebel against the pledge? republican and democratic aides tell cnn despite the compromising talk it won't have much impact at all on the fiscal cliff negotiations. there's little evidence of progress from staff level talks over the thanksgiving break and no hints from senate leaders just back in town. >> the senate has spoken and president oba

"newsroom" starts now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> good morning to you. thank you so much for being with me on this monday morning. i'm carol costello. we begin with the so-called fiscal cliff. 36 days from the crisis. new signs of just how concerned lawmakers really are. more republican lawmakers now say they will work toward a compromise, even if they have to break a promise not to raise taxes. that promise, that pledge, the brain child of anti-tax activist grover norquist, a long-time power broker in the gop. but the vote faced its first test last week when senator saxby chambliss said he was ready to break the promise. congressman king -- now senator lindsey graham has become the latest republican to say he would violate the pledge if democrats also showed willingness to rein in the nation's debt. >> i want to buy down debt and cut rates to creat
is already one of the most volatile regions of the world, mohamed morsi, the newly elected president and head of the muslim brotherhood giving himself near absolute power at the expense of egypt's courts and the country's justices firing back calling for a strike and protests until his decree is rescinded. and, there is this: a warning from a prominent opposition leader, that egypt's military may be forced to get involved against president morsi's wishes in an effort to restore order. let's begin with steve harrigan streaming live from cairo, protesters in full force in tahrir square, do you have any idea what is next for them? >> reporter: harris, what we are likely to see on sunday and tuesday, are, perhaps, massive street protests, not just by those who want to oust mohamed morsi, who think he's trying to become a dictator but those who support him, who think he is trying to do the right thing to dry and break the logjam and get rid of the old regime, we could see tens of thousands of people marching on the streets of cairo with opposite points of view, really, close problems im to each ot
on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. what we saw even before the election here in the united states is that netanyahu has said time and again even in the face of critics that there has been no stronger ally to israel than the united states. the criticism kept comincoming, though. after this incident, i really do think the critics will be quieted. there's a lot of talk about how successful the iron dome program wus was. it deflected over 80% of the rockets that were fired into israel. president obama has committed more funding to iron dome. and i think that it really does cement the fact that this president and this administration has been a tremendous friend and ally to israel and that is not going to change. >> looking to the future, amy, with egypt's mohamed morsi stepping in to broker the peace, does it show that the region no longer needs the u.s. to take the lead role? certainly secretary of state hillary clinton was there, but maybe not a lead role anymore in this type of negotiation. >> no, and in fact, the united states was very crucial to president morsi negotiating
getting elected. the lawmakers open to breaking the pledge say they will do so by closing loophole, not raising taxes, putting them at odds with president obama, who was re-elected by pledging to let tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. >> the president has made clear that he will not sign a bill that extends the bush-era tax cuts or those making more than $250,000. >> reporter: the republicans open to breaking the pledge say entitlement reform must be part of the discussions. both sides, working behind the scenes to find common ground. rob and paula? >> whiffs of a compromise. tahman bradley in washington. thanks, tahman. >>> and the next secretary of state choice faces critics on capitol hill. susan rice meets behind closed doors with top republican lawmakers. they have been critical of her comments on the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. senator john mccain is chief among her critics. but he backed off his threat to block her nomination. those two are set to meet tuesday. >>> there's rising tension in egypt this morning, among opponents of that coun

about hurricane sandy. the republican responses by the newly elected chairwoman of the house republican conference. she also talked about thanksgiving and said republicans were ready to work with president obama to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. obama talked about of the obama family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of ta family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of family and>> on behalf friends,d football. it is a date to fight the urge to take a nap, at least until after dinner. most of all, it is a time to give thanks for each other and for the bounty we enjoy in this country. that is important this year. we have just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. it also required us to make choices. sometimes that led us to focus on what sets us apart rather than ties us together. thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspective. to remember that, despite our differences, we are americans first and foremost. today we give thanks for blessings t
elected president, morsey was. and now he, they believe, has become no different than mubarak. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here an
chris christie, just announce thad he's running for re-election. christie's won praise and new found popularity with his handling of hurricane sandy. he says he is going to seek another term next year. so he can continue leading the state through the long recovery. and he, won back in 2009 by 86,000 votes. so far no democratic challenger has put their name in the hat, but we're hearing rumbles of potentially newark mayor cory booker. >>> another popular politician who has kind of gained some voice on the national stage. should be interesting. i wonder how two things will impact him in terms of his standing within the gop. number one, of course, the famous scene of christie and the president during hurricane sandy when he was very praiseworthy, you know, of the president, the speech at the convention, republican convention where he kind of talked, according to critics, talked a lot more about himself than governor romney. the stat was 17 minutes into the speech before he said the name romney. remember that? you wonder how the gop now feels about him. he is a popular guy. so -- >> got

to the presidential election, bob. >> bob: sometimes these things are not pleasant. sometimes people get their travel plans disrupted. the idea here is use the maximum leverage that you have and the maximum leverage for these people is the biggest travel day of the year. totally support them. it's the right thing to do. if they won't pay attention and won't pay living wage to people, bring attention. sometimes it's not pleasant. sometimes it's ugly. that is the way it is. right to organize and right to take petition management. if we don't have that right we shouldn't in this country. >> greg: i would love to see how upset tonight and you were trying to get home. >> bob: i'm upset as it is. >> greg: it's easy to say this 3,000 miles away. this is like taking up drums while your wife has a migraine. you won't make fans. i love this. i agree with bob. fantastic. they raised awareness of their own jackassery. they say they brought attention to an issue. the issue is they're jerks. they say i hate unions. i wish there was a latte union strike so academics would be upset and take the work to canada the wa

obama's re-election, with israeli elections coming up in january 22nd, with the head of the palestinian authority going to the u.n. to ask for nonmember states status for the palestinian authority for palestine, i think instead of looking upon all of this in a negative way, we should build on it. >> and then we're looking at pictures that involve egypt's president mohammed morsy. how do you see his role here? earlier in the week it was considered that he played a very strong leadership role here. he used his leverage as well. but then now with the power grab that he is entertaining in egypt days after helping to broker this cease-fire, is his role now being looked at or assessed differently? >> no. i think what we have to look at is president morsy's international role. he played a critical role and he played a positive role as being a very valid person between hamas and the israelis. i mean you had an israeli delegation in cairo working out this deal under egyptian egis. i think morsy played a positive role in helping gain the cease-fire. so that, i think, is one part of morsy. the oth
to talk about him a little bit. we arrange this, i think, because we figured post-election would be a really good slow news time to come out to arizona. god knows, we could not predict the director of the cia would resign this week and the worst hurricane or storm to hit new york for 100 years hit two weeks before. i am really proud of the election coverage, which was on the tail end of the storm coverage. and i was proud of the storm coverage. you have hundreds of people reject as a one of the great things for e students to look forward to. when you are with a terrific news organization. i love what i saw here in terms of the broadcast being put on and everybody putting on what as one of the greatest facilities i have seen. the spirit -- you will see it and the local newspaper -- how important it is we are still public servants. i think so much of what happens in a news today, people forget that. they forget -- you are here as a public service. that is an important part of what we do. the idea that everybody of the hundreds of people that work at cbs news during the crazy week o
quickly rose to be the voice of democracy in burma, creating the national league for democracy. elections followed in 1990, where her party won 80% of the seats. that joy quickly turned to tragedy. the military junta nullified the election and arrested aung san suu kyi. she would spend the better part of two decades under house arrest, unable even to visit her dying has been -- husband. in 1996, i recall being approached to sponsor a burma sanctions bill. sanctions were only loosened in july of this year. senator mcconnell later became one of aung san suu kyi's chief advocates in the senate and we continued to work on behalf of the people in burma. in 2003, following an assassination attempt, senator mcconnell and i worked to pass an important and that remains in place today, an effort to bring about further reform. and i must say, burma is extremely lucky to have a champion mike aung san suu kyi. in the face of violence, harassment, intimidation, she has never wavered in her pursuit of human rights. she celebrates the release of political prisoners, including the approximately 90 release
of following chambliss' suit? >> i think so, fredricka. a lot of republicans believe elections have consequences, and president obama was pretty clear in the election if he was re-elected, he was going to let the bush tax cuts expire on upper income taxpayers. and most americans seem to agree with him. you know if you ask 99% of the american people if you should raise taxes on the other 1% and not them, i think you can guess what they would do. elections have consequences. that's where we are. i think you will see some other republicans. >> this is quite the tight rope for a lot of republicans. even john boehner was reticent in saying, okay, i'm ready to raise taxes. he still is talking about maybe the health care reform act taking some sort of hit. but then therein lies the question that so many americans, they want to see a compromise. what is it going to take? what is going to be the area where either side is willing to compromise? >> well, i think republicans are going to want to see some real spending cuts. the situation has changed. we are in an untenable situation, spending s
. on the other hand, though, it looked as though in the upcoming election that is are going to happen on january 22nd that he probably would not get back into israel's parliament because the faxz that he leads in parliament is simply so small and doing so badly that they probably wouldn't get in, so it seemed as though the chances of him remaining defense minister were very, very slim. now he is seeming to take the high road out of office. >> fred, some people are definitely reading more into this. hannan is a member of the palestinian liberation organization's executive committee, and here's what she said. she said she hopes this signals recognition of the futility of the military approach and the adoption of violence as means of dealing with the palestinians. do you think, in fact, that by him leaving this is a message that perhaps that is true, that that is not the way to go? >> absolutely not. i mean, one of the things that is definitely true about ehud barack is that he looks obviously very fondly back upon his own military career. he was, of course, a part of the special forces unit in the

following the election, house speaker john boehner himself came out and said, we're willing to consider revenues as long as it's not done by raising rates. and so in some ways, the republicans have kind of made clear over the last several weeks that they're willing to move away from this pledge, fredricka. >> so does that help make some lawmakers and the administration feel rather optimistic that they will indeed be able to reach a deal in the next few weeks? >> well, certainly everyone's saying that they're optimistic. you'll remember that meeting that congressional leadership had with the president the friday before thanksgiving, leaders from both parties and both chambers met with the president. coming out of that meeting they said lots of positive things, said it was constructive. everyone knows where each side stands. i know we all know there's been work that's being done behind the scenes. the real question is what's going to happen in the immediate future? and also, when is congressional leadership going to meet with the president again? those are the things we're looking out for

was elected after the people of egypt decided they were done with centralized power with the mubarak government. why do you think he took this step? what motivated this power grab? >> reporter: well, he won't describe it as a power grab. his opponents are describing it as a power grab. but his position, the muslim brotherhood, which is his movement, their position is they want to move along the democratic process that has been bogged down, the drafting of the constitution that is bogged down. he came out today in a speech that says i'm with the revolution, i'm a protector of the revolution. of course, his opponents gathered in tahrir square today, vehemently disagree, describing this as the undermining of the principles of the revolution, victor. >> is there any sense that indeed when the new parliament takes place, or is seated rather, and the constitution is ratified, that he will give up these absolute powers? >> reporter: well, that's what he says he's going to do. but many of his opponents are very skeptical. and in the meantime, his opponents say there is going to be a lot of p
ever. after many hear their elected leader has driven the wedge deeper and wider. at dawn, there were more tents and protesters around tahrir square, but that didn't stop clashes with police, where protesters blocked traffic defying president mohamed morsi's orders. after morsi declared sweeping powers for himself, leaving him above the law. >> translator: we are here because the goals of the revolution have yet to be achieved. >> reporter: morsi told his supporters he had to take radical measures to protect the revolution. and fast track a new constitution being written by a mostly islamist assembly, after which he said he'd give up those powers. yes, he might be a dictator for the time being, but these powers will be transferred to an elected parliament, he said. but the decrees have triggered protests and riots across the nation. dozens were injured in alexandria when angry youth stormed and set fire to morsi's muslim brotherhood headquarters. this action makes him a dictator even more than hosni mubarak, he said. critics call it a power grab, after brokering a cease fire deal in g
